Only One

Post by The Ravyn » Sun Dec 14, 2003 9:52 pm

out of the blue
of a clear winter's day
doubled over in agony
festering poisons
puss inflamed
lying back upon
paper sheets
as the slow drip
brings nothingness
and the blade flashes
releasing the flow
yet ceasing my body's vengeance
upon my cowering soul
leaving me quivering
drug induced stupor
until the past is washed away
and i lie within my own
sweat soaked sheets
thanking the creator of all
that i have only one
and now it is gone
take my hand if you don't know where you're goin' ... i'll understand .... i've lost the way myself ...

Really quite emotive, as are most of your pieces Jen. Evocative of dark imagery and full of unanswered questions.

I have decided, too, that it is really a "dark" piece, which may be why it didn't get a lot of "traffic" in general.

The imagery was so good in this poem..and I could relate to the hospital the paper sheets the drug induced stupor...I guess I've had one to many surgeries in my time...

though she can't see this comment I still give sweet Ravyn a :bow:
